I visited the Olympic Village and Creek Side Community Centre in the weekend.

 

I saw the two beautiful and spectacular giant sparrows sculptures named "The Birds" created by Vancouver artist Myfanwy MacLeod.

 

The two sparrows are 18 feet tall each and they are located in the plaza of Olympic Village. I have only of them in this shot.

 

I find them fitting in nicely.

 

We can see Harbour Centre and Vancouver downtown skyline in the far away horizon.

There are now arguments in Richmond City Council whether the city should buy these artworks of Vancouver Biennale on display in Richmond. Right now they are on loan for display until end of 2011.

 

The artworks including this one Wind Waves are demanding prices from Canadian $300,000 to $800,000 each.

 

Should we buy or should we not?

 

I think there is no doubt these are beautiful artworks created by internationally acclaimed artists.

 

The question is more about affordability. Could we afford them? Shall we allocate the funds into purchase of these artworks and sacrifice other priorities?

 

It is like I sure know that D3s or Hasselbald are great cameras. Should I buy them? I would buy one unless I want to deplete my reitrement savings and then work until 80!

 

Happy Monday!

Located at the corner of Big Ranch Road and Oak Knoll Road, just outside the town of Rutherford in the Napa Valley, this vineyard always has large metal sculptures on display on the edge of the Blackbird Vineyards property.

Durant l'Expo de Québec, une grande tente est réservée aux sculptures de sable! Michel Lepire en est le maitre d'oeuvre et nous fait admirer son talent et celui de plusieurs autres artistes, tant dans le sable que dans la neige ou la glace!

We have great sunny and hot weekend!

 

I wish all of my friends enjoying the sun and outdoor!

 

This is just repost of an archive shot in Van Dusen Garden in 2011.

 

I went to see the Zimsculpt 2011 in Van Dusen Garden last weekend.

 

There are hundreds of sculptures in Van Dusen Garden. They are mostly beautiful artworks. I did not shoot all of them though.

 

This is the one I think the light is complimenting the work. It is named “Bathing”.

 

I saw she is enjoying the sun light nicely.

 

Happy Tuesday!

Public art piece in BC Provincial Court Plaza by Alan Chung Hung was installed in 1981. His other piece of public art in Vancouver is "Gate to the Northwest Passage" located in Vanier Park.

 

BIO:

Alan Chung Hung was born in Canton, China, in Feb 1946 and studied civil engineering at Chu Hai University in Hong Kong. He moved to Vancouver in 1969 and studied at the Vancouver School of Art. He was one of the founding members of the Chinese Canadian Visual Arts Society in Vancouver. Chung Hung died of cancer en route from Hong Kong to Vancouver in 1994. In the publication BC Sculptors, Chung said, “As I sit in the bush in the morning hours watching the buds grow, I become one of them – grow with them -from energy out of the earth. How strange our life is… we come from earth, return to earth but drawing life from death. I thrive on rule and order… appreciate definitions we make in our cultural history… …love fairy tales… fantasies… and illusions flashing across my mind! I am of the earth but growing in a fiery search of myself in contradictions and will be reborn from the ashes of desire.”

 

Robson Square is a landmark civic centre and public plaza, located in Downtown Vancouver, British Columbia. It is the site of the Provincial Law Courts, UBC Robson Square, government office buildings, and public space connecting the newer development to the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Checking on my B&W album and found this one about modern day communication scene.

 

Wish you a good Wednesday evening!

 

The following is original posted story

 

**********************************************************************

 

This is a simple street candid picture.

 

If you want to have it published or sold on images library, how many releases do you need?

 

Firstly you need to get model releases from the two persons in the scene.

 

Secondly you need to get the artwork release from the artist of the sculpture.

 

Thirdly even though this place may be accessible to the public, it may be part of a commercial or private property. You will need a property release!?

 

Four releases are required. What a hassle for a photographer and I think all these rules are making street photographers almost impossible to get any monetary or economic returns to their work. I wonder Cartier-Bresson has got all the releases before he published his works?

 

Have a graet Easter Sunday!

 

This is just repost of an archive picture in downtown Vancouver.

  

I saw the bird sculpture at Robson Square in downtown and I feel like it is talking me and yes talking to me without any portable device (I mean cellphone or smartphone).

 

I know I know this sounds like weird in this age of technology when everyone is so used to Facetime communication but not face-to-face communication.

 

Wish all of you a great Thursday!

I went to Van Dusen Botanical Garden to see the Zimsculpt 2011, the Zimbabwean sculpture exhibition which shows hundreds of sculpture artworks created by artists from Zimbabwe.

 

This is the details of sculpture named "Family".

 

Happy weekend to everyone!

Taken in the spring of 2007 at Vanier Park, Vancouver.

 

This is the sculpture art displayed in the park.

 

It was called "3 Arcs x5" and was created by French artist Bernar Venet.

 

City of Vancouver has been displaying quite some artworks in different areas of the city. I think they work very well in the open space.

This was at The Yorkshire Sculpture Park in one of the galleries. The gallery was lit but I wasn't expecting the photo to turn out like this.

Great day out with plenty to see.

Finished. I called it Rambutan.

 

The ZimSculpt sculpture exhibit is now gone from the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. It would be difficult to choose one favorite. But the "Elegant Lady" is one of mine. She was sculpted by Tutani Mugubazi from springstone. It had rained the night before and the rain drops looked like tears flowing from her closed eyes.

 

Thanks everyone for your views, faves and comments.
